Bay Colony Antiques is pleased to offer for sale this wonderful 19th century antique Sheraton gold gilt reverse painted mirror. We’ve been eager to get all of our new inventory up for sale but it just never stops coming in the door. This came to us from a Connecticut home where we purchased just about every mirror in the place along with a whole suite of bedroom furniture, dining furniture, carpets, etc.. Taking the time to really appreciate the mirror now it’s a really sweet example with a fantastic reverse painted panel, nice gold surface, embossed rosettes at each corner, tight ringlet turnings, & rare carved acorns and oak leaves along the columns. The painted panel is well executed and features a sweet rural courting scene with a house along the water. The artist did a great job with the sky & trees and the overall shading used throughout the painting. The panel has a gold stenciling around the border and is in fantastic condition with only the most minimal paint loss on the outermost white edge. The mirror measures 17 1/4” wide x 2 1/4” deep x 33 1/2” tall. The painted panel measures 11 1/2” wide x 9 1/2” tall. The mirror glass alone measures 11 1/2” wide x 17 1/2” tall.
